Dell Technologies has suspended all operations in Russia after closing its offices in mid-August. Dell is one of the latest companies in a growing list of Western companies to leave Russia.
Dell is a key server supplier in Russia
The company has now joined other firms in sanctions and restrictions on services in Russia. In February, Dell suspended all sales in Ukraine and Russia. The company then stated that it would monitor the situation.
“In mid-August, we closed our offices and suspended all operations,” company spokesman Mike Siemienas said. “Back in February, we made a decision not to sell, service or support products in Russia, Belarus, and the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine, in addition to the already-banned Crimea.
Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014 and recognized the self-proclaimed breakaway republics in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Such moves were condemned by Ukraine and Western countries, which imposed sanctions on Russia.
The Russian Ministry of Industry announced that many researchers and engineers working for Dell in Russia have already been offered new jobs, after the media announced that the company was completely leaving Russia. Dell will completely leave Russia and lay off all its employees in Russia. “We are monitoring the development of the situation,” said Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Vasily Shpak.
“According to our data, the vast majority of specialists and engineers who were employed by Dell in St. Petersburg and Moscow have already received job offers with a competitive salary from Russian companies.
